Katherine Staples works from her studio in Rutland. She completed her BA Design Crafts at De Montfort University, Leicester, where she specialised in ceramics. She went straight on to complete her MA Studio Ceramics at Loughborough University.
6 weeks later she gave birth to her 2nd child. 2 1/2 years later she gave birth to her 3rd child the day after a collaborative 500 piece, 1 month installation was taken down.
Katherine continues making her sculptures from her home studio in the garden.
